'The Phosphorescent Gleams of a Theatre that Failed'
The vivacity of this entanglement,
has been embraced
with heart breath
of the one we took together when we first met.
Since then covered in feverish letters,
handed over by glove covered hands,
touched with voices of enchantment
dreams for the infantile world.
A joyful mind voyage
in a time maze I would have sauntered in infinity.
Courteously begging for transcendence
From restless to courage
Courier, carry my wait
Fasten my feeble thought
yard the looming apostate
and give me back my self
I am a thrall in this cell

'The Phosphorescent Gleams of a Theatre that Failed' is a soundpoem made for Nuits et Noirs magazine nr. 3 - 'Sacred Language'.
The soundwork is constructed using stems from the series 'If one speaks the sacred language' by lht.
For this issue of Nuits et Noirs, the contributors were asked to respond on this quote of Antonin Artaud:
“I am adding another language to the spoken language,
and I am trying to restore to the language of speech its old magic,
its essential spellbinding power,
for its mysterious possibilities have been forgotten.”
